Card of the day is –
4 of pentacles (minor arcana)
To start off, the immediate word is possessiveness, and this does not so much have to be about materialism. Although generally the figure in the card is holding on tight to his riches. He has pentacles under his feet. This card praises and gives recognition to hard work you have put in to your financial life. It asks you to not fear losing what you have worked for and release the control and fear regarding loss. Release the grip a little bit and you will feel more relief. Ground yourself and remove fear, as fear creates blocks and barriers.
Possessiveness comes in many forms, people, materialism, ideas, situations, mentalities, and so on. Maybe you are holding onto control of a situation. What is it that you are afraid to lose control of? Are you holding onto your protective barriers? Your pride? Your old way of thinking? The past? your status? The relief will come when you let go. Maybe you need to let go of the illusion that you need to control every detail, or that you have to overpower to get across. The figure on the card is on the defence. Are you having trouble with trust? Maybe you are not trusting that the immediate future will have your best outcome. Maybe you don’t trust others with your possessions. Are you facing financial decisions that require risk? Are you trying to control your emotional pain externally to control how you feel ? Unhealthy behaviour that harms our bodies, such as drinking and overindulgence. let go and let it pass. Don’t hold onto fear, it only generates more and you will find yourself in a vicious cycle. Focusing on your defence will not leave room for much else. This card may also ask you to find value in the non- materialistic dynamic, Such as the little moments in life, family, friends, experiences and hidden blessings. Being controlling or possessive of materialism will tire you and you are better off projecting your energy into more wholesome experiences. When it comes to daunting and new experiences , release the control and let the universe unfold what it will.
Are you holding onto the past? It’s time to look forward and release the anchor, new chapters are on the horizon!
Often when we try to hold control of a situation we may find ourselves trying to control others in the process. Or even just controlling others for fear of losing them. Just let go of that energy my friends. You are allowed to relax a little!
